    Disable battery charging - possible software trick?


    I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop, and I'm searching for the way to disable battery charging when external power is on (it can't be done through any Fn keys and hardware switches). Anyone knows something about it?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Remove battery? That's the only way I know to do this. Remove battery, plug in power cord, boot computer.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
